I know. Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that the shadow DOM was only for blind
people.

Richard was claiming that "it is technically possible to make canvas
accessible" and it seems to me a blanket statement like that should include
accessibility for blind users. Despite Benjamin's excellent data, it seems
to me we are still far away from having general solutions to accessibility
for canvas-using applications for blind users.
